Ancestry.com has partnered with America's record keeper, the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), to preserve important documents and help people discover more of their family stories.

Since 1998, Ancestry.com has digitized and indexed millions of NARA records to create the largest collection of NARA records online. Starting in the spring of 2008, we began scanning documents on location at NARA. This is enabling access to more U.S. historical records online than ever before.

Our growing collection of NARA records includes more than 750 million names and 70 million images in census, immigration and military records, among many others.
